Illinois Cell Phone Ban - Chicago Political Commentary
Governor Pat Quinn finally signed an Illinois Cell Phone Ban into law on Friday. Quite frankly this is a common sense law which should have been enacted at the same time when texting while driving was outlawed. Now will it stop the thousands of morons I have seen the past few months while on the... Read more »

Greased Jackson Prison Sentences - Chicago Political Commentary
There is something terribly wrong with the criminal justice system. Especially when it comes to the sentences that corrupt politicians get versus the average citizen.

Illinois: So Much More Than Just A Deadbeat State
So what’s new in Illinois Politics?
